(2006) Crime drama about a New York City police detective (Denzel Washington) who matches wits with a cunning armed robber (Clive Owen) holding hostages captive in a Wall Street bank, while a politically connected power broker (Jodie Foster) hired by the bank’s owner (Christopher Plummer) muddies negotiations in trying to keep an incriminating secret buried in the bank’s vault. Smartly written with nods to Dog Day Afternoon and just the right amount of humor, director Spike Lee’s film puts an interesting spin on the heist genre while exploring themes of race and corruption, resulting in an intelligent caper that can be enjoyed on several levels, despite a morally ambiguous ending. Some discreet violence, violent video game images, pervasive rough and crude language, and a disturbing execution image, as well as some sexual humor, innuendo and racial epithets. (L -- limited adult audience) (R – restricted) AMC (cable)
